It’s always a privilege to work with the great @scottymetz , and I’m incredibly proud of the record that he made here at Restoration Sound. Watching someone with such a broad musical vocabulary make a uniquely restrained and deliberate record was a real please, and I couldn’t be happier that everyone now gets to hear what Scott has been up to.

Everything has been refined here for the last three days. It’s a joy making music with @kirksphoto and @d_scalia . The music we were making sounded nothing like this.

Here’s list of things to consider:
-income inequality
-how they get the graphite into pencils
-what the reversed audio is saying in that Missy Elliot song
-giving Lorenzo a little gold statue that he’ll never stop bragging about

This guy, @simonkafka has a new record out today that I think is really special. It’s spacious, complex, accessible and strange. “Better Things for Better Living” has a completely immersive vibe, I’m really proud to have produced it.

Today I am tickled to the marrow of my bones, because Ana Egge’s 12th studio album Between Us is finally available on all streaming platforms. Her dedication, vision and grace through the last months has been an absolute pleasure to witness.

It’s an album that feels subversive and expansive, a rallying cry and a confession. Please listen, and please let me know what you think.

Im so excited to have contributed to the new @kanyewest album. I recorded the choirs on “Off the Grid”, and spent many long nights working with the visionary @ojivolta . After being a fan for so many years, it’s really a dream come true to have had a small hand in this beautiful, ambitious record. Very grateful to @concrete.sound for making the connection and @love_burg for the supervision.

My album Down Where the Valleys are Low: Another Otherworld for Judee Sill is out today. It has been a mind blowing, humbling experience to eat sleep and breathe Judee’s music. The worlds that she created in her songs are scary, cruel and beautiful, much like her life, cut too short.

On this album I tried to tell her story using her own words. A portrait of her highlighting the dirtier, more earthbound aspects of her life.

I’m very grateful to all of the people who helped make this album. The singers, the sidemen, and the postproduction people each brought incredibly special ingredients. Dick Connette and Connie Kirch at StorySound took a chance on me and on this record, and I’m moved every day by their commitment to getting it out into the world.

Johnny V Lewis, Chris Schoonover, Nathan Golub and Henry Diltz informed and heightened the meaning of the record with their visual contributions. Alex Diaz and Lewis Klahr built beautiful kaleidoscopic universes for their videos.

Ok think I hear the orchestra playing me off. I can’t wait to hear what you think.

If you have someone in your life who hits things in time you should show them love. Here are the excellent people who wielded hammers and sticks on Down Where the Valleys are Low:

@eric_finland who played Wurlitzer and organ and brings levity and class to every musical occasion.

Bill Ruyle on the hammer dulcimer making strange medieval magic.

@zachjonesmusic who’s sense of song arc, dynamics and expression are such an incredible asset in the studio.

@joncowherdmusic who needs no introduction, and also almost never needs more than one take, he plays the perfect thing as soon as he sits down.

@jeremygustin whose feel and musical choices are both surprising and captivating.

I want to do a little appreciation post for @johnnyvpaints who did such a beautiful job of capturing the aesthetic of my record with his painting. He took an already beautiful @henrydiltz photo and made it even more transcendental. Swipe around for the many iterations of his talent.

"Make Me Feel," a song I recorded at Restoration Sound in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, released today and I feel like it's the start of a new chapter in my recording career. We took a visceral lyric that is a reaction to public events and paired it with music inspired by early 00s indie rock that you can move your hips to. I finally struck a balance between having something to say and having fun. I'm so proud of what we created! I hope you love it!
